Cuts are ‘treasonous’
RECENT further defence cuts, condemned by the Chief of the General Staff, a Government appointment no less, are simply treasonous. There is no other word.
Defence of the realm is the prime responsibility of government. I make no apologies for going back to my now-famous speech in Birmingham. This is happening as we give away £1 billion a month in overseas aid; £30 billion in IMF support to the Eurozone and a further £1 billion a month to Brussels.

• I WOULD like to visit bongo-bongo land in order to spend my tourist dollars where they might do some good boosting the local economy.
The travel agents tell me there is no such place, but I can definitely go to Cloud Cuckooland if I want to see money squandered on a monumental scale. I thought this place might be in the countryside or Switzerland but it turns out I only need to get the bus to West Offices.
The travel agents tell me I can upgrade to their Super-Cuckooland trip, but I would have to take a train to King’s Cross and then a tube to Westminster.
